Edward Zajec (USA) b 1938
Edward Zajec was among the pioneers in the 1960s, and more recently is professor of computer graphics at the School of Art and Design at Syracuse University. His focus has been real-time artworks originating in his paintings, which used repetition and redundancy, then developed with the use of computers from 1968. While his films have some aspirations in common with those of John Whitney Sr., his point of departure is the use of the computer in real time, and a different algorithmic or rule-based approach. Zajec's work has found its way into collections and symposia spanning many decades.
